DSL and cable are the two dominant broadband options around the Wayne area, frequently overlapping and generally competing with each other. Coaxial cable speed is usually stronger, but the overall speeds we've recorded with either type are similar.

There is above-average choice between providers within the Wayne area. However, 1,000 people in the area still don't have access to more than one provider. The consequence of this is that if they aren't pleased by their local provider, they are forced to compromise for a poor quality wireless connection. Luckily, this isn't the norm in Wayne — the average household has 4 choices for broadband-quality Internet service.

The plans shown on this page are collected individually through our data analysis staff. We've aggregated 241 plans in Wayne since 2014.

The top download speed advertised for Viasat reaches 100 Mbps, while HughesNet advertised up to 25 Mbps. Anything over 10 Mbps will be sufficient for streaming lower-quality videos on WiFi.
